“Family Values”

Ok, I think it’s time that we stop using the phrases “Christian values” or “southern values” or “family values.”  Or anything related.

Lets investigate to see what these phrases mean.  First of all, they are all used synonymously, so lets take “family values.”  Conservatives use this to exemplify that they like the family.  Or so they claim.  Now, who exactly doesn’t like a family?  Who wants it to be broken up?  I’m not sure.  What they really are saying is, that the are homophobic, racist, religious fanatics who force creationism and other religious dogma into other peoples lives.

Doesn’t forcing fanatical beliefs on others kind of seem, anti-family?  They are against same sex marriage–against allowing the creation of a “family”–unless it meets their narrow minded views.

Doesn’t talking about how much they hate children being born out of wedlock and that they are the cause of all of societies problems seem, kind of racist?  But there’s more.  They constantly try to increase this by being pro-life.  Oh wait!  They did it again, they have created an even worse scenario.  They now are trying to make birth control more expensive!  What would this accomplish?  Well, it would mean that less women have access to them and that there would be more babies being born to unwed mothers!  That is exactly what they are “against.”

So you see, not only are their “values” homophobic, they are also vehemently racist and sexist dogmatic beliefs.

Now, I think it’s time we stopped giving the republicans credit for “family values” or “southern values” or “religious values” or anything related.  Let’s call them what the are, values of a fucking douchebag, or values of a sexist asshole or values of lets fuck over our friends and lie about it.

You don’t need to be a republican to like the concept of a family.  In fact, it seems awfully hard to be a republican and like the concept of a family.


Fox News Makes You Dumber

Again, a study is released showing that watching Fox News makes you less informed that you would normally be.  Over at HuffPo,

Dan Cassino, a political science professor at Fairleigh Dickinson, explained in a statement, “Because of the controls for partisanship, we know these results are not just driven by Republicans or other groups being more likely to watch Fox News. Rather, the results show us that there is something about watching Fox News that leads people to do worse on these questions than those who don’t watch any news at all.”

I must say, this seems pretty obvious considering all of the hate spewing over at Fox, but now there is another study to back it up.

Herman Cain-Racist and Just Plain Nutjob

I’ve posted several things tonight, and figured I was done.  But then I remembered that I had the video below open in a tab.

Yes, a collection of Herman Cain clips.  I always found him interesting due to his blatant racism against not only Muslims, but blacks too!  Yes, he is racist against his own race.  How does that even happen?!  Well, the answer is, subscribe to Right-Wing ideology.

As recent polls have shown, he’s in first place, with Romney right behind him (or even within the margin of error).  Does this mean he will win the nomination?  No, of course not.  I still maintain that he doesn’t have a chance.  It will go to Romney, but for the time being, it’s funny to listen to some of Cain’s gaffes.
